Rick. I just went out to look at the chisels that I received. It looks like lacquer or something strong and dense. I tried Acetone and it softened it a little but not allowing you to take it off easy.

I tried a single edge razor blade and tried to scrape it off. I came some but not clean.

It might require some 150-200 wet and dry sandpaper like starting to sharpen them to get it off.

I found some burrs on the edge so they do need sharpening.

I used the Rockler cone diamond sharpener on the inside of the tips and a diamond stone on the ends at the tips. But I didn’t get they all clean yet.
